EVOLUTION AND RECOMMENDATIONS FOR FINITE ELEMENT PROGRAMS

Different stages, noted from 0 to 4, were developed to simulate the resilient behaviour of flexible pavements. In order to get stress fields more and more realistic, the models are presented with an increasing complexity. Nevertheless they remain simplified approachs trying to take into account the failure lines of materials. Through these models the authors show the successive improvement of the Boyce's model and the interest of a simplified elastoplastic formulation. (A) For the covering abstract see IRRD 883133.
